Common hip issues treated at OrthoIndy 

Total hip replacement

A total hip replacement may be necessary when chronic pain and poor function of your hip is hindering your quality of life and non-surgical treatments have brought no relief. Chronic hip pain and disability is often caused by arthritis. Other issues requiring total hip replacement may be a fracture or dislocation. Total hip replacement surgery involves:

  • Removing the diseased or malfunctioning part of the joint
  • Replacing it with an artificial hip
  • Customizing the fit of the artificial joint
  • A short hospital stay, usually just a day or two
  • Physical Therapy
